Geochemical Reference Material Compositions presents a unique, comprehensive compilation of chemical composition data for nearly 500 geochemical reference materials. This compilation is designed to be an indispensable source of information for researchers who use geochemical reference materials to calibrate analytical techniques or assess the accuracy of analytical results. All widely available geochemical reference materials are featured in this volume, including silicate rocks, soils, sediments, carbonates, oxide ores, some refractory materials (magnesite, silica), and ore materials (e.g., base metal, rare earth element, gold, platinum group element, uranium-thorium, and tin-tungsten ore samples).

To make the volume easy to use, composition data is listed in order of matrix type as well as in the form of concentration ladders. A guide to quality data is included (indicating whether data was designated as certified or recommended values by the originators), and published sources of reference material data are listed. In cases where source data does not include results for a particular element, additional data from carefully selected individual schemes of analysis have been included.

Geochemical Reference Material Compositions is an essential reference for geologists, geochemists, geoanalysts, petrologists, and libraries.
